About Me

I no longer shoot TFP....My rates are listed and are not subject to change. Although I have primarily done nudes, I am wanting to shoot more fashion/editorial and may be looking for models that fit my criteria

Something about my style....
Capturing a moment....The ability to produce in print that which the eye envisions and make it permanent so others can can appreciate the world I see from behind my lens.

A voyeuristic approach...finding life in a natural state and seeing it with a child's perspective....enabling the inner beauty to emerge softly, preciously and free of constraints~

~ The List of Veteran Photographers dedicated to helping New Models build their portfolios. ~
'The List' is a list of approved pro & semi-pro photographers who have agreed to dedicate at least one day each month to indiscriminately help newbie models in their regions develop their portfolios. Sign up as a newbie or contact me if you fit the criteria and you may be the model I work with TFCD this month!

Let me help you become a better model

If you are looking to "build" your portfolio, do it properly by hiring a professional photographer (not necessarily me) so you can exhibit quality work in hopes of booking paying jobs in the future. Remember, all TFP usually does is pad your portfolio with average photos instead of the type of work which inspires others to hire you.

MM Model Studio Rates are $200/hr with a two hour minimum($25/hr discount).
MM Model Location shooting is $250/hr with a two hour minimum($25/hr discount). If traveling outside of Phoenix it is a minimum of three hours plus travel expenses. Ask for image details and turnaround time (Usually 7-10 days). I am only shooting an EXTREMELY select list of models for TF...If I'm interested in shooting you for my book, I will contact you~

Deposits are required when booking a photo shoot. Unfortunately, too many models have booked and not appeared in the past and my time is too valuable to schedule no-shows. Thank you for understanding~

Please call me at 480.227.7297 for further info.

I look forward to working with you soon~

Aim model · Model

Hey! Did you get my message? I’m a full time international model with 10+ years experience & I Aim on coming from CA to Phoenix around August 27th - September 3rd before going towards NM. I’d love to know if you would like to work with me while I am here or if you know anyone who might. This may be the only chance to shoot me in your area. Do you have recommendations on how else to get more work or who to reach out to? ABOUT ME; I am highly committed, passionate, reliable, open to working with artists of any level of experience & am very experienced in a wide variety of expressive poses. I’ve worked throughout AUS, NZ, UK, EU, Asia, Hawaii, & now in North America with plans to travel through other parts of the world. My many years of experience in the industry with a range of creatives from around the world have earned me features in multiple magazines, art galleries & exhibitions in a variety of countries. I’m open to modelling with other male or female models (locals or traveling) in the studio as well as on location in various conditions & throughout a broad range of styles. My extra talents; I’m a musician, I know how to free dive which is good for underwater shots, can horse ride, go on long hikes & also can crack a stock whip, I practice yoga, & have done basic pole & aerial hoop/silks. IG; @layal.official (non nudes) @aim.model (nude) @aim.backup.model1 (back up nude)
Please let me know if you are interested & have a preferred day/time to shoot along with what area you are coming from or have in mind to shoot. Please let me know if you are ok with doing a deposit or if you only pay cash on the day. If you are interested to work with me but not sure when/where/how, please let me know anyway so I know to follow up closer to my arrival. My RATES; for up to art nude $150 per hour for 2hrs or more or $550 for 4hrs or $1000 a day. This covers costs including my meals/drinks, public transportation, outfits I can bring, my own make up & other things to help me be the best I can for you. Surcharges; for 1hr only, light fetish & extra shooters. I do understand people have budgets so I can offer pay off methods where you pay the rate over an agreed time. If Instagram or WhatsApp or even email is better than discussing here, please send me your contact details. Thank you in advance for respecting me. Hope to hear from you soon, keen to see what we can do together, all the best & kindest regards.
